Dust RGB Quick Guide
A 2-page reference document describes the fundamental aspects of the Dust RGB Imagery product and it includes a large dust event. The RGB composite is based on the EUMETSAT RGB guidelines, and these are applied using MODIS channels. The imagery highlights airborne dust, which can be difficult to see on visible and true color imagery or might be misinterpreted as other cloud or ground features. Other cloud and moisture features can also be identified. This Quick Guide style is intended to help users recall important aspects of the product and can be placed on a local intranet or a job aid sheet in operations for easy access.
